The Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that
"civil society and military groups involved in the planned breakaway on Feb. 24, confirmed that a "transition council" was to have assumed the functions of the "leadership" of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government immediately after President Macapagal-Arroyo and Vice President Noli de Castro were toppled."
This report vindicates the governments assertion that there was a conspiracy against it .

Now we can argue whether the government's reaction was excessive, but we cannot argue anymore whether they had a reason to.

My only qualm is that the PDI still insists in quoting unnamed sources., but they supposedly got the story from both the civil society adnd military sources, so I am assuming that those sources confirmed each others stories.
